Islamorada & Marathon

We are staying at Hawkscay Marina next week and will have a car. Any suggestions for great lunch places on the water at either place. Yellowtail snapper is a must. Also recommendations on happy hour and sunset watching.

  1. My favorite restaurant in Islamorada is Bentley's Restaurant at mile marker 82.8. It is definately a place you will want to eat at ....Simpley Delicious!!! You will have to all them about the yellowtail snapper.

    1. In Marathon, we really enjoyed Keys Fisheries.

      We ate at the restaurant; shopped at the market; and had them fedex home (to Boston) some yellowtail snapper that we caught..very casual.

      Good bbq..small place in Marathon on the right..just past the Hammocks resort.

      1. on the right..heading south.:) on a small canal; barely waterfront

        1. Has anyone been to Ziggy and Maddog's

          1. re: Sobe

            Been there many times. I can't believe that after 2 drinks, a bottle of wine, a salad and side dish they charged a $5.00 "sharing" charge. I WAS a regular and I live locally. They have their $5.00 and lost my business.

            They can deposit their "principals" in the bank.

          2. You gotta try the yellowtail snapper at Marker 88. Amazing stuff!
